Story behind the song
This is a song 'Inspired' by Alice in Wonderland, The Beatles and all the great 'psychedelic' songs from the glorious 'trippy' mid to late 1960's. Maybe you'll find this a particulally British psychedelic experience, with it's emphasis on 'Whimsey'. ?
Down the Rabbit hole . . . c David A Briggs 2010
This carpet that I'm sitting on, could take me for a ride, so lets take a 'trip', into the wide blue purple yonder, Looking down on waves, of emotion. Sail the seven seas, to a cave of elaborate dreams, Gemstones and Diamonds shine in the night.
The sands are deserted, the dancers have been alerted, they've run-out to watch the tide coming in. The timer it is ticking, all the sand, it is slipping, right down into the place there below.
I don't want to be 'hard-boiled' , or my trip, it could be spoiled.
. . . 'A converstion with a white rabbit'. . . . a section of 'Creative writing' . . . c David A Briggs 2010 . . .
Narrator . . . "I seem to be going wrong"
White Rabbit . . . " You've got to turn to the right, but others I know would say that left is the only way. It just depends on your point of view"
" I'd better take the middle way then, just to be safe"
and so on . . .
High on a mountain-top, I contemplate my place in the universe . . .
Mountain Tops (part two) c David A Briggs 2010
There are times when time is standing still.
There are times when emptiness can fill.
The space between us, spinning like a top.
There are times when, we'd like the world to stop . . .
Free your body, let your thought fly free,
lose your eyes now, then you'll really see.
Let the wind blow, softly through your mind,
There's a place there, just search and you will find.
All lyrics by David A Briggs . . . with thanks of inspiration to George Harrison for part two.
with thanks to Lewis Caroll . . . an 'Inspirartion'.
